Survey Saturday: My Band

So, I saw this really fun thing my friend did on Facebook, where using Wikipedia, Flickr and random quotations, an album art was created, and I thought it was the coolest thing to bring back Survey Saturday. So here's how it works.

1. Go to Wikipedia and hit “random” and the first article you get is the name of your band.
2. Go to “Random Quotations” (link: Click Random. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page will be the title of your new album.
3. Go to Flickr and click on “Explore the Last Seven Days”. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

It was so much fun to do this and I did not cheat at all; and this is what I ended up with.
Journey to the West is my band name, which is kind of cool but also very related to Journey. I think it's an old Korean movie or something, and also name of a book. Pretty cool! The last quote was by Susan J.Bissonette which goes like "An optimist is the human personification of Spring" which is so fun because I am an optimist and I love spring. Then, coincidentally, in Flickr the picture I got was of flowers which suited the album name. So, if I ever have a band, you know what I'm going to call it. We are going to be country band that sings about flowers and optimists. Our first album obviously will be self titled, so this has to be the second album. I've also got the song list for the album;

1. Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking - a song about bad fashion sense and cliche's and how flowers are not always the answer. Also a bit of a love between a florist and a fashion designer, and rapping about how people who wear floral are not always hippies.

2. If We Had No Winter - a sad song about all the things we can't do because we always have summer. Lots of references to snowballs, snow cones, and generally snow.

3. Full of Delight - Death metal song about random babble. This song is there because of my band mate's girlfriend who just turned goth.

4. A Kind Word is Like a Spring Day - a song about being kind to people. This has to be the nicest song in the album, so we will also release a music video, and release this as a single. The music video will show a parallel world where people who date Taylor Swift write songs about her and make millions.

5. Sweet Lovers Love the Spring - song about candy, sung by a guy who is lactose intolerant.

6. The Violets in the Mountain have Broken the Rocks - This song has just one line, the name of the song and follows music, much like Barbara Streisand by Duck Sauce. The music's not that good either. It's also sung in a chipmunk voice to make it less mediocre.

7. Apothegms to Thinking Minds - song about mathematics and how much we love it. Also includes a story-line between Economics and Mathematics and its relations.

Bonus Track: We Can Complain Because Rose Bushes Have Thorn - song of complaints, and bad metaphors.

Tell me what's your band name and album name? I'd love to see.


  1. West Newton [DAFUQ seagull] who wants a book to read -.-
